Back to reality

I got back into town 2 hours before my shift started at work and I needed sleep! I was having a difficult time staying awake at work. It was all worth it to see Macy Gray! Our census was low and patient load wasn't that bad. It was nice that it wasn't crazy busy! That morning I was all done with my work and the nurse that was taking over my patients still wasn't there at 0645 so I called her at home and woke her up! I was ready to fall on my face from sleep deprivation!! There was a nurse that was orientating someone and she was doing all the work so she took report from me and took care of the patients so I could go home! I actually was in bed by 0740 that morning and slept till 1630! I was still tired when I got up but felt better. Monday when I got off from work I kept falling asleep at home whenever I would sit down somewhere. Somehow I did get to my bed! I would wake up for about an hour and have to lay down! I am still trying to catch up on my sleep!

My classes started at the university today and I went to my first class and found out it is strictly an internet class! I was excited to here that! I was wondering how I was going to be in class for 6 hours after working a night shift! I don't have to be in class till 1900 now! I am taking Microeconomics and Statistics. I don't understand how these courses are related to nursing but they are a requirement. Statistics scare me when I look through the book. Microecomomics I am not sure what I will be learning! Both of my instructors seem like they are there to help us. I am glad about that!

I also have to ad that most men are jerks. I am not going to elaborate on that but if YOU happen to read my blog YOU know who YOU are! For some reason I tend to find the losers. ENUF said!

I am sitting in my extra bedroom watching "Shall We Dance" with Richard Gere. So far it is a good movie. I also have "The Jacket" to watch but haven't gotten to it yet. Hopefully tomorrow night I can watch it!

I am spending some time with my nieces tomorrow before they start school. I am not sure what we are going to do. We tend to like to sit at the Mudhouse, our favorite coffee shop, and just sit and talk or play a card game. I won't get to spend that much time with them now that we all are back in school and plus I have to work. I always look forward to no school days to spend with them if I can be off from work!

I am including a picture I took of Macy Gray at the concert! I have took quite a few pictures! More Later!

She threw bottled water in the crowd and I CAUGHT THE FIRST ONE SHE THREW!!! OMG!!! This is the first concert I have been too that I have enjoyed!! It will be so worth it being tired at work tomorrow night! I had better get some sleep for my drive back home!! TTFN!!

Cloudy sneezy day

I tried to order my blinds that I want for my window in my bonus room today and they are still unavailable but they have a date now! The are on back order till November!!!!!!! I am unsure on what I am going to do. I might just wait or go to another store to see what I can find around the same price.

My allergies have started up. I kept sneezing today! I checked out the pollen and it is Ragweed, my biggest allergen! I haven't been taking my allergy medicine as I haven't needed it so today I am trying to get it back in my system! I can't breathe through my nose which sucks. I am hoping that I wake up in the morning felling better! Nothing to exciting today. It has been rainy off and on today. Toodles!

Sleeping the day away . . . .

I have slept all day and didn't intend too. I finally fell asleep at 0600 and woke up at 0900 today. I did a few things around the house and around 1030 thought I would take a nap till 1200 then get up and get ready for my usual Sunday Mudhouse trip. I ended up waking up at 1800 and slept through the alarm! There went my day and I didn't make it to the Mudhouse as usual. I am on vacation from work and wanting to be on a normal schedule and can't seem to do that. I feel as if I was drugged and it still needs to wear off. I hope that means I can sleep tonight! I haven't gotten much done today because of the sleeping issue. I am just going to take it easy tonight and do some chores around the house. I would be nice to wake up to a somewhat organized house!

Let there be light!

Well, after searching the stores with no luck for a new light bulb, I found a website for hard to find bulbs and found my light bulb!!!! I am sitting in my bonus room with my new light bulb in my lamp! Now, as long as no bugs appear in the window again it might be safe. One never know when Felix is around!

I have been without my internet for 1 1/2 days and it was horrible! I like to check my email often to stay on top of things. I was getting ready to go to work one evening, going to check my email and my wireless connection wasn't working! I didn't have time to deal with it so when I got home yesterday morning I messed with it a little and still couldn't get it to work. SOOO I was going to my ISP when I woke up that evening. I tried a few things before calling anyone and I was shocked when I fixed it all on my own! I hope that never happens again!

I am on vacation from work and very excited about it. I am pondering on going to St. Louis. Macy Gray is putting on a FREE concert at the gateway arch next Friday. The only thing is that I have to return to work Saturday night. I am hoping to spend time with my nieces, have a cookout with my sister at my house. Today I am going to a friends house for a cookout. I rented movies last night to watch. I also would like to get my extra bedroom cleaned out so I can enjoy it to it full potential! I want to make it a retro room and I have found a new retro store downtown that could make it happen! I am also hoping to get some scrapbooking done. My circle journal that I am in has started and I am excited about that. I have my first journal to work on and can't wait to get others! I hope to learn more on blogging so I can add music and other features to my blog. I am guessing that I need to know HTML.

He He! I got an email with a bunch of different Maxine funnies. I had to add one here, as I can relate to it sometimes! :-)

Enough for now. TTFN!

Crazy cat!

I just had to say that I finally had gotten me a lamp for my bonus room in my house so I could scrapbook, be on the computer or whatever and not be in shadow of light. Felix, my cute youngest kitty, heard a bug in the window, jumped on my desk and knocked my lamp off a couple of days ago and broke the bulb! It takes a special bulb that I have never seen before. SO! As soon as I can find me a new bulb for my lamp, I will be able to see again.

I had a good day today. My sister and I took my nieces to the fair for free ride day. It was a little bit too hot but we had fun. When I was younger and went to free ride day I remember it being sooo packed! It didn't seem that way. My sister and I wonder if it was because we were little and everything seems bigger and things took longer to us! I wanted to go to the fair mainly to get the little jug of A&W rootbeer. I got it and it just wasn't as good as I had imagined. Ohh well! It was a great day!
